Nikos Anastasiadis emphasized that the solution of the Cypriot problem does not cease to be something that was his vision.

“Sorry for what I was unable to offer, despite my will. I am sorry because I am leaving with the Cyprus issue unresolved, I am burdened by this, but it is not burdened by me, I do not feel remorse or be burdened by my conscience that because of my manipulations there was no solution” said the President of the Republic of Cyprus Nikos Anastasiadis.

In a full-length interview he gave to the Sigma television station, Nikos Anastasiadis emphasized that the solution of the Cyprus problem does not cease to be something that was his vision.

“And I have, because of Turkish intransigence, like my predecessors, failed despite the expressed will of at least a plurality of them that their desire was to find a solution based on the parameters.”

The President of the Republic of Cyprus underlined that there is no question of the credibility of the Greek Cypriot side. “There is an issue that the solution of the Cyprus problem does not depend only on the Greek Cypriot side. It also depends on the will – if it has it – of Turkey. Which, from the movements observed lately, seeks through Mr. Tatar the negotiation of good neighborliness between two states”.

Asked about it, he emphasized, among other things, that he admits mistakes made during his administration, while he supported the dissolution of the Bizonal Bicommunal Federation. Answering a question regarding the responsibilities of the Greek Cypriot side for Turkey’s actions, he also referred to Greece, saying:

“Should Greece accept Mr. Erdogan’s ‘Blue Homeland’ claims, in order not to bear the responsibility for what is being threatened?” At some point logic must prevail, but also the correct analysis of reasons. When did Turkey show a willingness to cooperate or make a positive proposal and was rejected by the EU side?”

And Mr. Anastasiadis concluded: “At the same time, and of course I cannot but apologize for the mistakes I made but also say how proud I feel, because I will deliver a Cyprus, a modern State, with institutions and I hope that those who will succeed me to continue the same path, even leaving the “Cyprus of Tomorrow” endowment.
